It doesn't matter how much we loved it, nor does it matter how many boxes we emptied into our bellies while it was made available in 1984, there is no logical reason to own an AFA80 box of Kellogg's C-3PO's cereal. As simple as that. Follow the link above to check out one of the most obvious entries to the TRA Hall of Fame we've ever stumbled across and let us know what you think.

Click through to find out more about these two figures and why, after a decade you are finally able to have a look at these key pieces of modern Star Wars collecting history.

Our own Chris Wyman found some new Star Wars stuff at the Disney Store in Brandon, FL's Westfield Brandon Mall. Click the thumbnails above to check out the Speeder Bike die cast vehicle, Chewbacca bobble head with sounds figurine, and plush Wicket. As a rule Disney Stores always receive their new stock on Mondays and Wednesdays, but as they ramp up for the holiday season they are receiving shipments almost daily and from a logistics stand point, they are quite good at making sure all their outlets receive the same items, so you may want to check your local store to see if they have this new stuff in stock as well.
